Square-Enix announces the official release date for its role-playing and action videogame Dragon Quest Swords (Wii) on the european market ; it will be May 9, 2008. This one kinda differs from the classic model used by the series, mainly because the hero has to slash ennemies on screen using the Wiimote. Furthermore, all of this adventure is played through a first person perspective.

Good game but not really worth the asking price (low replay value). I'm waiting to buy it at $20. And I forget the loligoth's name, but she was definitely the best part of the game :)

It may very well have good graphics & use of colour, but it's kinda hard to see through the jaggie mess written all over.

Hmmm I don't like the idea of it being first person, some of those character models look terrible also, not artistically, just low polygon and crap textures. (even for a Wii title)

Looks very rushed in places.

    Moonwalker @droezelke: Yep, absolutely no reason for me at all to get one right now. I'm good with Zelda on Wii U. If Mario had been a launch title though....... lol. (3 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker this year because this was clearly going to be Sony's year, but then MS announced Scorpio and Mario Odyssey was announced. But next year should be fine, no big purchases planned, haha. (3 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker I told myself when PS4 had just released that I was gonna get one when Uncharted 4 came out, but when it came out I borrowed my brother's PS4 and finished it. So I was then planning on getting one (3 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker I realize I'm going to need a PS4 for that and the plan is to get one next year. Just can't be this year with Scorpio, a new TV and probably a Switch for Mario too, lol. (3 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker A JRPG like Ni No Kuni 2, Tales of series, Star Ocean even though the latest is bad. Not just JRPG either, games like Nioh, Nier etc (3 Hours ago)
